Matthew Lillard Finds ‘Dungeons And Dragons’ A Scream

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Actor Matthew Lillard makes his living starring in films like Scream and Scooby Doo but his secret passion is really Dungeons & Dragons.

He’s been playing Dungeons & Dragons for 30 years and says the role-playing game has helped his acting skills “by engaging my imagination – unlike video games.”

Lillard still plays regularly and is hoping to inspire a new generation of players tomorrow (Oct. 22) in Los Angeles when he participates in a Dungeon & Dragons tournament to benefit children with life-threatening illnesses.

The top six players will get to play Lillard but he predicts he will probably be beaten “handily.”

Meanwhile, Lillard is keeping his day job. He just finished a new movie, Dungeon Siege: In The Name Of The King, which is based on the popular video game, and, he laments, has no dragons, just the dungeon.
